Leonidio Town

In the picturesque alleys of Leonidio, the traditional manor houses stand as specimens of the “Tsakonian” architecture and exude a stately air. Travelers can relax by taking a stroll in the market with the small shops, the cafes, and the taverns. For the fans of hiking, there are wonderful paths which give you the opportunity to admire the fertile valley of Leonidio with its citrus and olive trees and the endless blue of the Argolic Gulf.

The routes towards the churches of Saint George, Saint Athanasius, Prophet Elias and Panagia Xatzaliou, are the most remarkable. Another place of worship worth visiting is the monastery of Saint Nicholas (Sintza), which is suspended between the earth and the sky, creating an intense atmosphere of devotion.
